There are 3 comments on POV: Universities Need to Invest in, and Support, Cultural Organizations for Students

  1. I completely agree with the author on BUFSA and joining other similar cultural organizations while at school.

    Diversity is important, access to diverse culture is a joy and something we must celebrate.

    Please continue to encourage students at all levels and let’s get faculty engaged to support this initiative.

    As an Adjunct Professor at BUSHA, I am happy to contribute in anyway I can and be a resource to BUFSA and others interested in protecting the integrity of this wonderful initiative.

    Kindest regards
    Peter

  2. I understand the author’s point; however, the author does not specify what resources and investment are missing from cultural organizations either at BU or across the river. Would love to understand what’s needed.

  3. The author makes so many good points in this article that is really relatable to anyone who has been a part of a cultural organization. Especially for people who have moved far from home to attend college, the change in scenery is a shock that is made better by being surrounded by people who share similar stories and backgrounds to you. I don’t think I would have enjoyed my college years as much as I have without the cultural organization I’m a part of and the people I’ve met along the way. Having a community and people who are so friendly and supportive provides such a great atmosphere to students who don’t feel wholly comfortable at BU yet.

    I, too, think that BU is lacking when promoting cultural organization’s events or message and it is extremely important during these times that they continue to support and fund these clubs so that people have a safe, welcoming space to be.
